Three things to know

• The Sooners have won four straight, their longest in Big 12 play since 2015. Their two straight wins against No. 9 Kansas and No. 5 Texas mark the first time since 1995 that they have won back-to-back games against top-10 foes. With a win Saturday, the Sooners would be the first team to win three straight against top-10 teams since Michigan in 2013-14. OU would also be the first team in at least 25 years to beat four top-10 teams in a calendar month during the regular season.

• OU sophomore De’Vion Harmon has been dynamic during the four-game winning streak, leading the team with 18.3 points on 54.9% shooting. He’s also shot 42.3% from 3 in that stretch.

• Alabama enters on a 10-game winning streak and is the highest-ranked nonconference team to play in Norman since No. 3 Connecticut in 2003. OU is 5-3 overall against the Crimson Tide, though Alabama won the recent matchup in 2018 when future NBA lottery picks Trae Young and Collin Sexton squared off.
